    Michaux Trail Cup

    This was an excellent race yesterday in the Michaux State Forest. When I saw rain in the forecast the night before I was afraid it would turn into a mudfest like Tuscarora a few weeks ago, but the trail ended up being in great shape.

    I did the 50 mile option and found plenty of both fun and challenging trail. There was great swag for all riders as well as podium finishers and best of all, the post-race pig roast crushed! Well worth the 4 hour drive for me and I'll definitely be back next year.

    Looks like everyone had a good time, and that pig was damn good!! Thankfully the course didn't seem too wet (granted I only rode the last 4 or so of the second loop as a sweep).

    Forgot to add - even if you're not a racer this is worth entering. Even with a map I would have gotten lost trying to link all those trails together on my own!

    Yep; awesome race. I'll be back next year also! It's one of those hurt-so-good races I wrote a race recap on my blog here if you're interested:

    Awesome recap Phat. I flatted 4x that day and also bonked hard at about mi 18. Suffer-fest indeed!

    There's a regular XC race called the "Terror of Teaberry" in Spetember from another promoter in the area that you may be thinking of though:
